Ainsdale Discovery Centre

Ainsdale Discovery Centre
Open during the summer, the Discovery Centre provides a popular place for visitors to the coast to pop into on their way to the beach and provides a gateway to Ainsdale and Birkdale Sandhills Local Nature Reserve. Located just off Shore Road on the edge of the beautiful sandy beach, the centre offers a wide selection of information on the rich cultural and natural history of Ainsdale and the surrounding coast and provides an insight into the work of the Coast and Countryside Service. The centre is popular with schools and other visiting groups and has a programme of events throughout the year.
